    "i also have a concealed-carry permit that allows me to carry a concealed weapon. i took the time and effort to get the permit because the constitutional right to defend yourself doesn't stop at the end of your driveway"

    Trump made the comments at a campaign rally in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

    Trump is in favor of making all concealed carry permits valid in every state.

    JFK was a life member of the NRA. His anti-gun brother Teddy aka Edward Kennedy had a privately employed bodyguard who was arrested trying to enter the Senate Office Building with illegal weapons. Hypocrite Teddy quietly found a friendly judge who dismissed the charges. The brother of one of the victims of Barry Hussein's insanity is desperately trying to re-open the case on "Operation Fast and Furious" where the federal government shipped over 3,000 illegal weapons to Mexican drug cartels (what were they thinking?) and one of the weapons was used to murder at least one U.S. citizen, a Border Patrol Officer not to mention the estimated hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens who were executed. If lefties were serious about the cliche of "gun control" they would push for the indictment of the federal officers who authorized "Op. Fast/Furious".

    every state has it's own driving test that residents have to pass. once a state licenses you to drive, every other state recognizes that license as valid. if we can do that for driving, which is a privilege, not a right, surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right not a privilege!

    violent crime in our inner cities is out of control! murder rates are way up!

    there are far too many hardened drug dealers and gang members who are repeatedly involved in drive-by killings. we need to get them off the streets so that they don't continue to terrorize their neighborhoods and ruin more lives!

    It could be just a populist statement, and I'm not sure he uses it if he does have a permit. He's probably had bodyguards for most of his life and doesn't need to carry for protection.
